television? one of the biggest electronic shows opened in berlin today. our technology -- technology correspondent was there. >> this is a pretty good place to get a vision of the future of television. they are selling a lot of 3-d sets. you get the experience without glasses. i don't quite get it myself. plenty more sets. they seem convinced customers will want that. we will have to sea. you can even get fairly cheap 3- d video cameras. you can see the two lenses on the front. you are selling these devices. this seems like a gimmick to me? >> you only have to look around the show to see how big 3-d will be. >> another big thing is putting your tv on the internet, lots of apps here. this gives you facebook , e bay, twitter. it will be a big theme over the coming years. what really matters is the quality of the picture. this is the best you will probably get. a very thin screen and sharp picture, but very expensive. 3-d, connected tv, the future of television is getting a little too complicated. >> a team of divers say they found the world's oldest drinkable beer off a coast. the bott

right, let's take another audience member. >> my name is berlin, but. -- [unintelligible] the quality of journalism, we feel that all of the people working in poverty, those people are always excluded. especially where corporate mainstream media is concerned. we do this in so many ways and so many forms. the real quality of journalism is the people. even though we are grass roots, always hanging by a thread, we never failed to be heard. i believe that the mayor of oakland said this, for one the government is pretty much run by large media corporations. when you are out there speaking the truth that they do not want to hear, just to make your media -- especially if you are pointing out your expos -- that you are exposed. we also believe that in media there should come education. the word minority is a derogatory term. believe it or not. thank you. >> we have a little bit of time left. i want to make sure all of the audience

due to disappointment in angela merkle 's government. >> it is amazing what they are doing in berlin. they are tearing each other apart, challenging each other's authority. no plan, no direction. overseeing it all, the chancellor can never make a decision. >> of local villagers are campaigning against the planned underground storage facility for co2. fundamental green causes have now entered the mainstream. the greens have fought successfully to become a major party. >> over the years, the greens have not only battled to enter regional parliaments. they have also doubled for specific political issues. the things the greens were saying 10 years ago are things everyone is saying now. >> the surge in popularity may have taken the party somewhat by surprise. now the grains policy needs to be realistic in today's world and remain true to the environmentalist platform. that can be a difficult circle to square. but it is something many green party politicians have experience with. >> we are already eight major party with 30% support on a municipal council. it is not just a matter of scoring
